Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and New York Jets have met 44 total times in the regular season and postseason during the last 58 seasons. The Titans lead the series 24-19-1, including a win in the only playoff matchup.
The most recent meeting marked the first time the Titans and Jets played at MetLife Stadium, which opened in 2010. Played on December 13th, 2015, the Jets won convincingly, 30-8. Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick completed three touchdown passes, and the Jets defense produced five sacks in the contest.

The Jets also took the most recent meeting at Nissan Stadium on December 14th, 2014, winning 16-11. In front of their home crowd, the Titans had a fourth-quarter lead, but a one-yard rushing touchdown by Chris Ivory put the Jets on top with three minutes remaining on the clock. A frantic, last-minute charge by the Titans ended on New York’s nine-yard line as time expired.
The Jets, like the then-Houston Oilers, were charter members of the American Football League. From the league’s founding in 1960 through the 1962 season, they played as the New York Titans before being renamed the Jets for the 1963 season. With the exception of 1967, the Jets and Oilers played twice each season from 1960-69, and the Oilers won the first six meetings in the series.
In 1991, the Oilers began a string of six consecutive victories against the Jets, including a 17-10 victory in a 1991 AFC Wild Card Game.
